Teresa Collins *love* at The Wholesaler and Scrap Africa.6:23:00 AM
Hello everyone...sorry for being missing in action for a while. it seems that August is always such a busy month and with that i lost a bit of blogging time (ok time everywhere it seems). the house is a mess, the work area is a mess, i am behind on washing and so many other things it seems.but i did manage to play with the amazing new Teresa Collins Family Stories this past week. First up is a new Scrap Africa sketch so pleas head on over and play along with us
i had fun creating with inks and the washi tape in this range - so many little things to add details to your layouts.
and then there was this layout i made for The Wholesaler - you can visit their blog here to find out what i had so say about this amazing range of papers - this all while Teresa Collins is in South Africa visiting and teaching our shores. such a lucky girl - but i am unlucky to not attend her classes. maybe sometime soon in America!
i used a combination of the papers and cut out elements to spread the colour around my layout which i totally love. i am so in love with the beautiful soft pink combined with orange of all colours and that amazingly soft blue and delicate turquoise - pure perfection.
i used a recent stamp i found to create a paper pieced flower - and am so in love with the look. i am not a huge fan of paper piecing but have had the perfect flower visualized in my head for this for ages and when i found it i was over the moon. it worked so well with this paper range as well! pure bliss.
ahh and the simple sticky note - well she did it! turned something so simple and functional into something playful and fun and scrapbookingy.
i also added a few Ali Edwards' stamped words, pearls, diamante and brads to finish off my layout. i hope you will hop on over to The Wholesaler and see what other beautiful products are currently available! a well designed range of paper and embellishments has gotten me back into being excited about new papers after a rather long dry spell waiting for the new releases to land here in SA.
wishing you a wonderfully creative week - i have about 2 more days of 6 days left in the studio photographing.....well you will just have to wait a bit longer. let me just say i am giddy with excitement and have rekindles my love for publishing and photography, and am so thankful to God for this opportunity and privilege! have a stunning week!
